Times and cooking powers have been preset for defrosting a
number of food types.
Manual Defrost requires that a cook time and power level be
entered if using other than 30% cook power.
For optimal results, food should be 0°F (-18°C) or colder when
defrosting.
Unwrap foods and remove lids (from fruit juice) before
defrosting.
Shallow packages will defrost more quickly than deep blocks.
Separate food pieces as soon as possible during or at the end
of the cycle for more even defrosting.
Foods left outside the freezer for more than 20 minutes or
frozen ready-made food should not be defrosted using an
automatic Defrost setting but should be defrosted manually.
Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield parts of food such
as chicken wings, leg tips, and fish tails. See the "Aluminum
Foil and Metal" section first.
Use the following chart as a guide when defrosting meat, poultry,
fish, bread, or juice.
